Red Velvet and Body Scrub…a perfect combination. I love Red Velvet cupcakes! They are one of my favorite desserts. I’m not a big cake person but something about Red Velvet cupcakes just calls to me.

6. Now that both bowls are mixed well and microwaved you can now assemble your Red Velvet Body Scrub.

7. In the jar add a layer of the brown sugar mix then add a layer of the white sugar mix on top of that. Continue layering each mix until you reach the top of the jar.

How to use this scrub

Hand scrub: Wet hands with warm water, place a spoonful into hands and rub together. Rinse and pat dry your hands. Apply your favorite lotion or body butter on after.

*Notice the beautiful Red Velvet color the water turns as you rinse your hands.

Foot scrub: This can get messy, best to use in the shower. Wet hands and feet with warm water, place about a spoonful into hands and rub on feet. Rinse hands and feet and pat dry. Apply your favorite lotion or body butter.

Lip scrub: Grab a small container and place coconut oil and your Red Velvet Body Scrub into it (1:1 ratio). Then mix well. When finished take a small amount and rub it on your lips. Wipe clean and apply your favorite lip balm or gloss.

In shower body scrub: Apply to damp skin and rub over body, being careful to avoid any sensitive areas. Rinse well and pat skin dry. Apply your favorite lotion or body butter on after.
